In early 2017, Ben Taylor was contacted on Facebook by Joel Willie from Monrovia, Liberia. Joel said that he needed financial assistance and that he was struggling to provide for his family. Ben didn't have much money, but was able to send him a low-level consumer camera and ask him to take pictures of the living conditions in Liberia. The result is the small, best-selling photography book, By D Grace of God.
